The Battle

The Battle

In my simple mind the issue is about Salvation and Justice.

The oppressed believers look for Justice, from mere mortals, when they have already have been assured it, Eternally (Matthew 5:10-12)

Those believers concerned about protecting their Salvation have only to look at the empty Cross and Tomb to know that that war has been fought and won.

The battle that rages does not have the Eternal implications which have been ascribed to it. It is an earthly battle, fought by mortals for the entertainment of the Evil one.

For the believers, there is nothing of permanence that one side can give to the other, Christ has already intervened and provided it.

However, the responsibility that both sides have is to the unbelievers. Even the loss of one soul, who looks to the disfunction of the Church and turns away in disgust, never to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, will be too high a price to pay for this battle of mortal (and perhaps moral) righteousness.

Why don't we give the buildings of ultra conservative congregations to the missionary Anglican Church, ultra orthodox, and then see who is left? Actual Methodists could start home churches.

    “All of us are theologians. The minute we say something about God, we are speaking theology. Young voices, unheard voices, need to be nurtured in the practice of reflecting on faith and the wider world, and this event will do just that.”

– Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, quoted in "Theology Slam," a new young people's ministry of the Church of England.
